Note: The financial independence requirement makes it extremely difficult for most undergraduate students whose parents are not California residents to qualify for classification as a resident at the University of California. This includes students from community colleges and other post-secondary institutions within California.
Transfer students who were classified as residents of California at their previous school should not assume that they will be classified as residents at UCLA.
